Professional Summary

I believe that all families and individuals should be given the opportunity for change and room for improvement in their lives.  I have worked in the sector of foster care for over six years. Primarily as a case worker, Family Team Conference Facilitator and now a Supervisor. I have helped families combat difficult moments in their lives, over come challenges and also prepared them to continue on the journey to  reunification and permanency.  I have helped families achieve permanency, ensured the safety and well being of each child in my unit and succeeded in satisfying clients as well as committing to my duties as a social worker and a dedicated employee. As a Supervisor, I have trained new workers, given individual and group supervision , managed emergencies and more.  I've handled tasks with accuracy and efficiency. As long as I am serving this population, I will continue to do my duty to assist  families and children in helping them to become independent and well functioning in their community and their lives.
